O2 launches pocket Wi-Fi device
O2 has moved into the mobile Wi-Fi market with a Pocket Hotspot device launching today.
The Pocket Hotspot allows up to five devices to connect simultaneously and is available on two prepay deals. Consumers can top-up daily, buying 200MB of data for £2.04, or buy 1GB or 2GB bundles for a 30-day period, priced £10.21 and £15.32 respectively. The device costs £59.99.
O2 general manager of consumer Gary Booker said: 'Customers have told us that they want access to the web on the go, but that they don’t always want to sign up for year-long contracts or to buy lots of data from the outset. O2 Hotspot has been designed to cater for exactly those needs: lowering upfront costs and offering customers lots of options when it comes to the amount of data they buy – what they need, when they need it.'
